About Barco Abrasives

We’re a nationwide distributor of quality abrasives, cutting tools, and hand tools. The company was started in 1970 as an abrasives warehouse/distributor serving all parts of the Northeast, from Maine to Florida, and out to the Mid-West. 

Since then we’ve helped production managers, factory machinists, and foremen optimize their manufacturing process with custom, specialty, and in-stock products. Close affiliations with our suppliers’ engineering departments assure you the right tool for the job. 

We’ve worked with companies such as General Electric, Raytheon, and DuPont on their cutting tool grinding and polishing requirements. That includes Tools-To-Print work and in-stock items, large and small. Barco Abrasives, Inc. is also an approved supplier of the State of New York and the Federal Government. 

Our owner, Karen Schue-Baruth, has worked for over 20 years at Barco Abrasives, designated a New York State Woman Owned Enterprise in 1991. She speaks personally with each of her clients, drawing from her experience to recommend a wide variety of products for various applications. 

We handle both large and small items in our 5,300 square foot warehouse located in Rome, New York. Everything from large diameter wheels to small drill bits. Low overhead makes our prices very competitive. Give us a call today…we look forward to speaking with you!
